This year as for many pre-Covid years, I was honoured to place a wreath at the Cenotaph For the Dawn Parade on behalf of the Warkworth Air Force Association, of which I am Vice-President.
Photos and speeches have all been well reported, your excellent committee and very hardworking staff, religious advisors, musicians, suitably recognised as were the many, many service people of all ranks and persuasions.
For me, once again THE moment was when the notes of the last post stretched out into the dawn sky, welcomed by a lark.
There were few dry eyes in the huge respectfully silent crowd of all ages.
I am not ashamed to say that I was far from alone in weeping for those who have given their lives as well as those who still serve.
Thank you and God Bless you all.
